Powers:
Expert in tactics, unarmed combat, demolitions, and weapons. He also has a high pain threshold.

Bio:
Frank Castle's family was slain by Mobsters in a park circa 1976. After this horrific event and assumed dead, Frank returned to the streets to wage a one-man war on crime as the vigilante Punisher. Armed with weapons and an extreme desire to punish the wicked, Frank Castle has become the scourge of criminals everywhere. A Vietnam War veteran, many of his experiences in the jungles led to the violent nature of who Frank would eventually become.

First met Elektra in the Punisher #27 (2003).

Starting in the mid-1980s, Punisher has starred in a variety of solo books, miniseries, prestige format books, and made numerous appearances in other titles. He remains one of Marvel's most popular antiheroes. To date, three movie adaptations have been made of his exploits. John Romita, Ross Andru, and Gerry Conway are all attributed with creating Punisher.
